be used in an emergency like the horrific school shooting in newtown, connecticut. but are more guns in our schools really the answer? "outfront" tonight, ryan, political analyst, roland martin. >> how you doing? >> good to see you guys. >> good to be here. >> is this just playing up to the nra or it is plausible solution to stop school shootings? >> it's certainly not a plausible solution, but the problem is, there are no plausible solutions. there's a guy, a criminalnologist who wrote a great piece about this. the thing with mass shootings, these guys are determined. they plan well in advance to evade security measures. and so, the idea from the right that you're going to arm police officials and have them at every school is false and the idea on the left that you're going to eliminate guns that's also false. you have to look at the gun violence problem more broadly rather than fighting the last war. >> but there is a disconnect in this conversation. i want to play for you guys a quote from frank lutz. here's what he had to say about the nra's proposal. >> the public wants guns out
significant this year, in light of the mass shootings in connecticut. now, take a look all around me. there are hundreds of cars, just lining up. people wanting to sell back their guns. the cars are stretched around the block. now, if they turn in a handgun, a rifle or a shotgun, they get $100 gift card. if they turn in an assault weapon, an extra $100. and david, the purpose of this is to get guns off the streets. and david, most of the weapons here will be destroyed. david? >> lines as far as the eye can see there, abbie. thanks to you in los angeles. >>> and in washington tonight, president obama is cutting his christmas vacation short to try to cut a deal as that fiscal cliff nears. now just six days until higher taxes for all americans. and tonight, a white house official is placing the burden of not getting a deal on leaders of congress. one official saying the hits from our economy are not coming from outside factors, they're coming from congressional stupidity. some members of congress do return tomorrow. these comments come just as barbara walters prepares for her "nightline
